    I am new in california so I use navigation every single day. I love iPhone. But it does not have free navigation system like android.

    Is there a way to get a free reliable navigation system on iPhone?

    I am willing to pay a one time fee. If there is any app.

    I am on verizon.

    Google maps works great and it's very accurate/reliable. It just doesn't have voice guidence.

    rumor has it that there will be Voice Navigation as well, as part of the Assistant (Siri acquisition) feature.

    I also wish the iPhone has this feature. Google maps on android is amazing! If you go to the app store and go to the navigation category you'll find tons of free ones. I gave in and got the ($39 i think) Garmin app. It works even better than a stand alone garmin GPS!

    Edit: The Garmin app is a one time fee

    This is what I use, and it works great.

    Navigon and tom-tom are good and it's just a one time fee to buy the app.

    I love Navigon. It's a bit pricy, but well worth the cost.

    It's well worth every penny.

    @OP .... Since your willing to pay a one time fee, Navigon is the way to go.

    Navigon was worth it for me (would have paid full price a long time ago had I known)

    Yes. They were widely known as a major player in industry. They were probably more popular in Europe than in the US. I say "were" because I believe they just got acquired by Garmin.

    I would definitely like a free/integrated voice based Navigation system in iPhone. Not a bad thing to have. In those "Assistant" related stories, they keep saying it will help with Google Maps (as in Navigation), so let's see if Apple was holding this feature out for the A5. Fingers crossed!
